Green Superfood Smoothie

A go to combination of mine. The pineapple adds all the sweetness you need and you will have boundless energy after blending. I am a self professed coffee addict, there is nothing like coffee that gets my gears running after a night of restless sleep, but this green smoothie competes with how much it wakes me up.

Ingredients

2 cups spinach, baby leaves, or 1 cup frozen spinach, lightly thawed

2 tablespoons of chia gel (chia seeds soaked in water or coconut water for several hours, good to have on hand in the fridge, and lasts a week!)

3 pineapple rings, or 1 cup pineapple chunks

1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh

1 teaspoon spirulina

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons goji berries

Directions

Blend well and enjoy!

My Breakfast Every Morning

February 1, 2013

Blueberry Pineapple Green Smoothie

This is hands down one of my favorite breakfast smoothies, I have had it for the last three days. I think I saw a pin on Pinterest about how good blueberries and pineapples are together and I had to try it for myself. This is delicious! The coconut water adds a great, refreshing taste and the color is a pretty indigo.

Ingredients

1 cup baby spinach leaves

2 pineapple rings (I used canned because it’s easier and I like the juice)

1/4 cup pineapple juice

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 cup frozen blueberries

2 tablespoons unsweetened soymilk

1 cup coconut water

1 tablespoon raw almond butter

Directions

Blend and enjoy!

Green Tea Green Monster Smoothie

This is your basic green smoothie with the punch from green tea, that you will notice but in a subtle way. I am rushing in the mornings most of the time so I take mine to go.

Ingredients

1 cup green tea, chilled (great to do this step the night before)

1/2 cup chopped apple

1/2 cup pineapple, diced

1/2 cup pear, diced

1 cup baby spinach leaves or 1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed

Herbs, for toxin detoxification (parsley is a safe bet and so is cilantro)

Directions

Blend and pour into your container of choice or drink it immediately! Try to consume within two hours if you are taking it to go.
